**** FLU CLINIC ****
We are now booking for our flu clinics. As usual these will be held on Saturdays in October - the 5th and 26th October 2013. Please book in now if you are 65 or older, or have a chronic illness that entitles you to one.
SHARING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
The NHS is planning to start using the data held in general practice about us all, to improve patient care and develop services. You can choose to opt out of sharing your data, if you wish, by letting us know. For more information please see leaflets 2_cd_patient_information_leaflet.pdf
, or come into the practice to discuss.
We are sorry to say goodbye to Dr Bradley, who has just left us to move to Australia for exciting adventures. Thankyou for your service to Jessop and our patients for the past 5 years, and good luck!
We are delighted to confirm that two new full time Partners have joined Jessop in August 2013. They are Dr Kathryn Burnett, whom many of you will know from her time spent here already, and Dr Sukhvans Sandhu who also trained locally. We are sure they will enhance our team hugely, and will hopefully help us further develop our services and access.
NHS 111 Service
From 21st August 2012 the new NHS 111 service was introduced in this area. From this date if you need urgent medical attention when the surgery is closed you should dial 111 which will connect you to the service free of charge (from landlines or mobiles).
We have welcomed 4 new GP registrars to the practice in August 2013. Two of them, Dr Chung and Dr Ghafoor, have been with us in the past and return for 12 months to complete their GP Training.
Dr Narasinghan and Dr Fahami join us for 4 months each (until December 2013) as part of their GP training. Welcome all!
Thank you for completing the survey. Our results, and response to it, is now available on the website under the link on the right hand side of this screen. --->
Our Patient Participation Group continues, and is always looking for more members. Please see the PPG pages on the right hand side for further information. The next meeting is at the Greenhill surgery on 4th September at 6.30pm.
Jessop Medical Practice is one of 57 practices that make up the Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group. One of our GPs, Dr Mott, is heavily involved in this work. Further information is available here.
